Now THIS Is Gutter Journalism, Rupert Murdoch Style

May 9, 2010

Would you be shocked to know this gutter ball  comes from Rupert Murdoch’s “The Sun”?  The story deals with the lack of election mandate for any party following the elections in Britain last week.

But that produced a provocative front page in the Sun, the country’s most widely circulated newspaper. (with a blue-collar readership) The paper — which in this election abandoned the support it gave to Labour in every election since 1997 and embraced the Conservatives — has made Mr. Brown its favorite target.

In its Saturday edition, it ran a story headlined “Whitehall Property Scandal” that began: “A man aged 59 was squatting in a luxury home near the Houses of Parliament last night. The squatter, named as a Mr. Gordon Brown from Scotland, was refusing to budge from the Georgian townhouse in Downing Street, central London — denying entry to its rightful owner,” identified by the Sun as Mr. Cameron.

    Skip,

    In regards to your comment here….

    I might add one other comment in regards to the story about the pope being arrested as I noticed that on May 6th in Haaretz that the “arrest for crimes against humanity” was again mentioned in a very long article.

    The article I used about the pope in the story you mention came from the BBC. I think the Guardian is the only UK paper mentioned in the BBC article.

    Why did you note that this came from a paper owned by Rupert Murdoch and decry it when you accepted the BS about Richard Dawkins trying to engineer a campaign to have the Pope arrested which was also from a Murdoch paper? Why did you not note that the Dawkins story was from a Murdoch paper?
